1. If there is an extension through June 30, 2011 of increased Federal Medical Assistance Percentage under the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (P.L. 111-5), the reduction of $2,400,000 the first year to the general fund in this item for the General Relief Program shall not become effective. The Governor shall have authority to direct that the reduction authorized in this paragraph be imposed, either partially or in full, as he deems necessary in order to ensure that the costs to the Commonwealth of contingent restorations in various items within this act do not exceed the amount of funding made available due to an extension of the increased Federal Medical Assistance Percentage.

2. However, if the extension referenced in paragraph 1. does not occur and the General Relief Program is reduced by $2,400,000 million the first year then the Department of Social Services shall eliminate all components of the General Relief Program except for the unattached children notwithstanding § 63.2-802, Code of Virginia.  The department shall have the authority to enact emergency regulations to affect this change within 280 days of enactment.
